In the first two chapters of Genesis, God lays out some foundational first principles about the origin, dignity, nature, purpose, and limitation of work. Work is not a part of the curse or a necessary evil; it is a call to partner with a God who works. The essence of our work is to imitate God and to join him in cultivating and caring for his good creation. We work to display his excellence and to seek the common good. We also rest, knowing that our identity and significance is not ultimately found in our productivity or earnings.
